Orval Day and Trappist Celebration

Posted in: News/Specials

Come help Dario’s celebrate this year’s Orval Day, Saturday March 24!  We will be joining the Notre Dame d’Orval Monestary of Belgium in donating 50 cents per bottle sold to  MAP International , an organization providing life saving medicine around the world to those in need.

In honor of Orval, and all the Trappist style ales, Dario’s is hosting a Beer Dinner featuring Orval, Chimay, Westmalle, and Rochefort!  Come join us on Thursday, March 29th for a four course dinner and beer pairing to keep the Trappist tradition strong.  Seats are limited, call ahead to reserve a spot for you and your guests before time is up!

“OR-VAL” literally translating to “Golden Valley” is one of the frontier beers of passover times tracing back to its origin story exemplified on the Orval logo, a blue trout holding the Widow of Count Chiny’s, Mathilde de Toscane’s, gold wedding ring.  She dropped her ring in a local spring and prayed for its return.  When a trout appeared holding the ring in its mouth, she vowed to donate funds towards building an abbey for Trappist monks founded in 1070. Overtime the abbey transformed its land to contain a hop field creating a platform for brewing beer which has allowed for long term profit that has even provided funds for covering wartime expenses.  Pictured below is young Dario and Amy in front of the ruins of the original monestary that had been severely impacted by the French Revolution.

The Orval ale has never changed its recipe since its conception using a slightly different method than most Trappist ales called brettanomyces, which utilizes a yeast variety providing a sharp acidity and dryness that is crisp and cleansing to the palette.  Comparitively, it has a lighter profile than most Trappist brewed ales and in turn, Orval has became the first “Brett” beer to be imported to the United States and the western hemisphere, now distributed from their new and improved building of worship.

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas!!

As we celebrate our 10th year in business we are feeling very grateful and nostalgic. The past
ten years have been exciting, sometimes stressful and rewarding. When we opened Dario’s
our daughters were in preschool and kindergarten, now they are in High School thinking about
college. Dario and I are 10 years older and wiser. It’s amazing how quickly time goes.
One of my first memories, is before we opened Dario’s. We needed to get our liquor license in
time so we could open on New Years Eve, a bold move. We barely made it. It was a race to
the last moment. My Mom drove me to Lincoln, to physically pick up the license. She didn’t
trust me to drive, I was a nervous wreck. I also remember Autumn, Haley and Josh working
New Years Eve and making the night go off with out a hitch, we couldn’t have done it without
you! Dario and Ramon doing all the cooking, the food that night was exceptional!! We had a lot
of friends that came in for dinner on New Year’s Eve and we had an amazing amount of walk in
customers excited to try a new restaurant. There was a snow storm as well. I think that set the
tone for stormy nights craving Dario’s. We are looking forward to this New Year’s Eve, I know
the food will be delicious and maybe it will snow. We hope to see old friends and maybe some
new faces.

Dario’s has been a labor of love from the beginning. We are excited to see what the next ten
years brings! Thank you to all the wonderful people that have come into our lives because of
this very special restaurant. We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a joyous 2018. We hope to
see you soon!!

To keep the celebration of a decade of Dario’s rolling, we’ve decided to thank our customers in the best way…with a free dinner! Dario will pick up the tab for one lucky table every Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday during February. At the end of the month, we will tally those tabs and donate that amount to the Open Door Mission & Lydia House. All you need to do is stop in and enjoy some delicious food & drinks, to help us make a donation.
Dario came to this country, with his mom & sisters, as war refugees and he is so grateful to be here. Omaha & Dundee have been a wonderful & welcoming community, Dario & his family are excited to give back. We hope to see you soon for your chance to be one of the lucky 12 tables that enjoys dinner on Dario.
